Pertussis, also called whooping cough, is a respiratory infection that can cause coughing and choking spells which can last for weeks and even months.

  • The best way to protect yourself and your family is to get immunized.
  • Ensure that your children have had all their pertussis shots, as well as their high school booster shot.
  • Adults can receive a free Adacel shot that protects against pertussis, tetanus and diphtheria.
  • You can receive this shot from your healthcare provider or with us at Clinic Services.
